Are you fighting with those puffy eyes? Do you have dark circles that you can't get rid of? Well, my name is Sylvia Russell, and I'm going to show you how to get rid of puffiness and dark circles from under the eye. Now, listen, we all wake up with a little extra bag or two under the eyes, and the perfect way to alleviate that is to take a cool washcloth, place it under the eyes first thing in the morning. Give yourself three to five minutes to help take that swelling away. Make sure that you drink plenty of water because, overnight, the water tends to sit and build, so we want to make sure that we're full of nice, clean water so that we can get rid of all that in the morning. Using a wet washcloth on the eye will help take the swelling down. Now, if you got some cucumbers and you want to look cute, use those, too. Second thing to do is make sure that you have a good concealer. I have several here, and I'm going to show you what I do to get rid of some dark circles. Now, take a little bit of concealer, nice and easy on the eye. Remember, pat, pat, pat under the eye. Also, make sure you keep a good moisturizer because the skin tends to get taut and tight under the eye, especially in the morning. So using a good moisturizer under the eye will help to alleviate puffiness, but also soften the area so that it doesn't look as dark. Make sure you pat very well, and make sure that your concealer is a shade lighter than your natural foundation. You don't want it to be the exact same color because you want to lift and hide the dark circles. We don't want to go darker under the eye. Once you've applied your concealer, making sure that it is blended well, then you can go in with a light powder just to dust underneath the eye like so. Now, if you've done all of this, you should be able to have a nice, fresh look, a nice, clean look without the puffiness under the eye. Remember, drink plenty of water. Use a wet and cool towel or cucumbers under the eye. You can also try some Preparation-H, and a lot of eye creams or moisturizers that are on the market today. Remember to use a concealer that is lighter than your foundation. My name is Sylvia Russell, and this is how you can relieve puffiness and darkness under the eyes.
